Campus housing began in the unfinished basement of Fort Worth Hall in 1910 when the seminary moved from Waco to the present campus in Fort Worth. Today, the seminary provides approximately 630 apartments and houses and more than 350 spaces in two residence halls.
To apply for housing, you must be an approved student. At the time of move-in, the student must be (or will be at the next registration period) a bona fide student enrolled for academic credit in an approved Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary degree or certificate program, maintaining a minimum of six (6) hours per semester (spring and fall).

Campus housing is reserved for current students who are full-time (internet and i-term classes do not count) each spring and fall semester. One may apply for housing ONLY after receiving approval from the Office of Admissions (new students) or the Registrar’s Office (returning students). Online applications to become a student at Southwestern are available here.
Once a student has received approval from the appropriate office, he or she may submit a housing application.
The admissions office offers full tours of the campus on most Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays throughout the year. A full tour includes a walking campus tour, a housing tour, and an opportunity to visit with school ambassadors and faculty members (Wednesday tours will also attend chapel during the semester). The housing office highly recommends that prospective students take this tour.
The deposit is refundable when the reservation is cancelled at least 30 days prior to the move-in date or when the tenant moves out after giving a 30-day move out notice. The refund is also subject to additional cleaning/damage charges incurred upon move out. A list of move-out guidelines can be found on our website as well.
Monthly rent payment is due on or before the first day of each month. The first month’s rent is prorated on a per-day basis beginning on the date of occupancy. Rent continues as long as the tenant has a key (i.e., possession of the property). The only exception to the monthly billing are the residence hall units, which are billed per semester.
Housing keys will be supplied when the lease is signed on the day of occupancy. Replacements for lost keys are available only through the Housing Office with a $5.00 per key charge. Keys are not to be duplicated by the tenant.
After-hour and weekend key pick-up is available to students moving into campus housing who make advanced request. However, we recommend that students plan to move in during normal business hours if at all possible.
The only area in which pets are permitted is a designated area of Carroll Park. Each pet must be pre-approved through the housing office. Pets in all other housing areas are not allowed, even temporarily, anywhere within the Leased Premises or the Housing Community. This rule also applies to Carroll Park for animals that have not been pre-approved. Click here for more information about applying for the pet area in Carroll Park.
Note: Service animals are not considered pets. A service animal is any guide dog, signal dog, or other animal individually trained to provide assistance to an individual with a disability. Service animals perform some of the functions and tasks that the individual with a disability cannot perform for him or herself.
The housing office does not assign roommates for apartments. However, students interested in rooming together with other students of the same sex can put their name on a list through the housing office. The housing office will then provide contact information to those who are looking for a roommate. All roommates must meet the eligibility requirements for student housing.
A 30-day notice to the housing office is required for move-out. Graduating students may remain in their housing unit approximately two weeks following graduation and only need to give a 14-day notice. Failure to provide adequate notice may result in the loss of the housing deposit.
Each room is equipped with a bed, desk, chair, dresser, closet and bookshelf for each resident. We have compiled a list of suggested items to bring. You may access this list by clicking here.
Yes. Each residence hall has three resident assistants (RA) and at least one residence director. RAs live in centrally located rooms on each floor. They plan a variety of activities throughout the semester to promote student life and community within the residence hall. One RA is on duty each evening. Schedules are posted throughout the building.
Each residence hall also has a residence director. The residence director lives in an apartment within the residence hall. They provide oversight for the RAs and are available to the residents in the event of an emergency or when an RA is not available.
